Yes, this is very similar jcase's post. His helped me out a lot, but I went more in depth. Here is his post.

0) Download these files
SuperSu 2.74 - https://download.chainfire.eu/964/Su...0519174328.zip
Universal ADB Driver
Android SDK - https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html
TWRP - https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24588212152304477 (Experimental build)
SunShine - http://theroot.ninja/apks/SunShine-latest.apk (Optional)

1) Visit htcdev.com and unlock your bootloader
-sign up as a dev, activate your email, and follow the steps
2) Download twrp from the app store. You won’t be able to run it yet but you still need it
3) Put the supersu zip file from your computer into your download folder of your phone
4) Get fastboot & adb running on your computer.
- open cmd prompt
-navigate to the fastboot/adb folder in your cmd prompt
-with your phone plugged into your computer type “adb devices”
-if it returns your device good
-now in cmd type “adb reboot downloader” (you can also do this by powering off your phone then turning your phone on by holding the down volume button and the power button at the same time.
-once you are in the downloader type “fastboot devices” in cmd
-if this returns your device good
-DO NOT GO ANY FURTHER TILL THIS IS WORKING!!!
4)Once your phone is in the rebooted downloader screen type “fastboot flash recovery <twrpDownloadFromAbove>”
-make sure you are on the downloader page and not the bootloader page
-this should end in .img
-this is a second boot screen for your phone. The first time I did this recovery wasn’t working because I was trying to fastboot on the bootloader page.
5) Now boot into recovery mode by navigating to it on your phone or using the cmd “adb reboot recovery”
-Once you are here you will see the twrp screen
6a) The way I did it is going into the twrp recovery boot and going to install and choosing the supersu.zip file I moved to my phone in step 3. After it is done reboot your phone and now you are rooted.
6b) The other way is to go to advanced in twrp and enable sideload
-now in cmd type “adb sideload <SuperSuDownloadFromAbove>”
7) If you need to turn S-OFF install sunshine on your phone and it will do it.
-You need to have your phone rooted first to turn your S-OFF with sunshine

Hi, I've been trying to root my phone since a couple of days but I've not been able to do it. I followed your guide as well as jcase one, but the results are the same, I can't boot to recovery mode after flashing the twrp image saying "failed to boot to recovery mood. Press volume up or down to back to menu" when I choose the option from bootloader screen (which is the only place where I can find a "boot recovery" option, and using the cmd command doesn't work.

When you are in the bootloader screen does it say unlocked at the top? Also make sure you've flashed the twrp img to recovery. If it flashes correctly you should see that it starts downloading ok your phone

Successful Root!
Thanks I followed all of the instructions and I was able to successfully get Root on my metro pcs HTC Desire 530.

IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUE with the TWRP.img

- Make sure you have "OEM Unlocking" enabled under developer options in settings since the phone wiped when you unlocked the bootloader it probably unclicked that option and you just have to enable it again.
- Check md5sum of the TWRP image file maybe you have a corrupt file and therefore a bad flash (I use OP link it worked fine).
- When pushing the TWRP image make sure you have a good USB connection.

@matora

OP is original post otherwise the link provided.

One thing I did do different is I downloaded and installed "Minimal ADB and Fastboot" and I also installed HTC sync manager prior to flashing the recovery

Hope it helps
